What is the port under the steering wheel?

I noticed what looks like a diagnostic port under the steering wheel of my MY99 uk turbo, is it an OBD2??

As if it is I thought I would get a reader to get live data streams as the car is not running quite right but it is not flagging up any fault codes when I connect the plugs together so I would like to know what data the ecu is receiving??

Only New age 2001-2007 Impreza's have a OBDII diagnostics port. Not classic shape Impreza’s.

I've now got a bluetooth obd2 device which links up to the computer ok but will not communicate with the ECU. The software (I've used about 5different versions) finds the device but when you try to scan I think it says cannot connect to ELM??

Any ideas if there is different software specific to Subaru's or is my device faulty??

Any advice greatfully received

$26.03 - OBDII Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Cable - Black + Blue + Orange (DC 12V) - OBD/OBD2 Car Diag. Tools

This is the reader I have, I know it's dirt cheap but everything else I've bought from Deal Extreme has been fine, really don't understand how they can manufacture the items on there and ship them half way round the world for so little
